Manizales

A major center of education and commerce, Manizales also serves as one of the hubs of coffee production in Colombia. A tour of Manizales reveals an energetic urban area famed for its eclectic nightlife, fuelled by the city's young population of university students. Damaged repeatedly by earthquakes in the 19th and early 20th centuries, this regional capital offers little in the way of historical attractions. Most visitors take a trip to Manizales for a chance to explore the surrounding area, which attracts hikers and nature lovers wishing to escape urban distractions and discover a part of nature barely touched by modern development. Manizales is in Caldas Department. Use our Colombia vacation planning tool to arrange the details of your trip to Manizales and other destinations.
